CapeStorm – Mitchell’s Plain

Update posted by Melissa Jaftha On Jun 15, 2017

One of the angels I got to know through Facebook, Oscar Bougardt has been diligently serving the Kapteinsklip sisters and brothers even through his own challenges. At one stage the van he uses didn't want to work, then the carport at his home blew off and last night he was at Hospital, but in and through all this he serves. I saw a message between him and Zaakirah today, "are you sorted for "K" (Kapteinsklip)?" and it made me smile.

I sometimes become a little weary and start to wonder are there really good people out there and they keep proving to me that there are.

Keep on keeping on, the both of you.

Get well soon Oscar!

This was not what I thought Zaakirah meant when she said clean up the Camp! The guys and ladies willingly helping out to clean up, as she calls it Smurfs! This is amazing as they do not get a hand out, but a hand up and get to experience active citizenship. Way to go, as they, us, you and me help the Kapteinsklip sisters and brothers restore their lives.

I have not met Zaakirah, but the interactions we have had has left me feel like I need to do more. Zaakirah and the rest of her family are currently all ill with either Bronchitis or Flu and they are fasting as it is Ramadaan. Yet she is out there ensuring that the people who were not just hit by the Cape Storm, but a fire the previous week are fed a warm meal. I am still trying to figure out if this is an angel or a human. She is indeed selfless and I look forward to the day when I get to meet her. Thank you my sister for the love you show to you fellow brother and sister.

Last night we were hit by a Storm we as Capetonians last experienced in 1989!

The Storm continues to rage on, and has left devastating consequences and continues to do so.

People in Kapteinsklip, Lost City and Tafelsig are currently sleeping in makeshift shelters. The need is great as they are currently being fed three meals a day and rely on donations from ordinary people like you and me.

The people in Kapteinsklip are hardest hit as they lost everything in a fire last week Friday.

Your help is needed to offer some relief, thank you.
